Today both my husband and I had a dental appointment. His was at 10:30am for a cleaning and mine was at 12:00pm for my last fitting and to pick up my partial denture.

I dropped him off at the dentist and took a trip to Value Village to look for wool or anything that peeked my interest. I didn't find any wool this time but I found some baskets, a nativity , a Halloween hanging decoration and a Christmas hanging decoration. The snowman and the bunny was last week's find.

Then I went back to the dentist for about 10 minutes and had the fitting and paid $1150.00 for my partial all the while thinking how much of April's wool I could have bought for that amount, yeah... I had a partial put in place in 1998 and when I was in hospital in another city for radiation treatments, the partial was accidently thrown into the garbage by mistake by the cleaning staff while I was in treatment.  In 1998 I had only paid $525.00 for it. Somehow it doesn't feel that it has been 12 years since my first partial.

Today we moved 13 calves into the bigger pens and tomorrow I have to clean pens for a good part of the day. My husband will help with the heavy bedding cleaning and I'll be scrubbing the small cubicles where we keep the small calves.

Today also we got another big heifer calf. I haven't fed it as it was sucking from the mother and wouldn't drink as she was full. JB
